Ultrasound

Where will my ultrasound be performed?
Most insurers will allow you to have your ultrasound performed in our office.

How many people can be in the room during my ultrasound?
You are welcome to bring along one or two family members or friends. Any children must be chaperoned by an adult other than the person having the ultrasound. Please remember that the technician needs to focus on you and your study.

Do I need to have a full bladder for a nuchal translucency?
Your bladder needs to be quite full in order to perform this procedure. Transvaginal ultrasound is typically not successful for this type of test.

Are copies of my ultrasound images available at anytime?
Yes, images are stored on the hard drive of our GE Voluson. Each month we copy these files to disk storage. Knowing the exact month of your scan will help use find your images.

What is a Sonohystogram?
A very thin catheter/plastic tube is passed though the cervix to allow us to fill the uterus with fluid/ saline while the sonographer obtains images. With the fluid in place we are able to evaluate the lining of the urterus (endometrium) in much more detail than with a standard ultrasound. The entire procedure usually takes less than 15 minutes and may cause a little bit of cramping.

Can I eat before my ultrasound?
Yes.
